Centreville, VA Today, candidate for Lt. Governor Tim Hugo received strong endorsements from two former Virginia Natural Resources executives and the former director of the Department of Historic Resources.

“As a consistent patriot and conservative, former Delegate Tim Hugo has a keen understanding and record of protecting and supporting Virginia’s natural resources,” said Doug Domenech. “From enhancing the health and economic value of the Chesapeake Bay to safeguarding the coalfields of Southwest Virginia, he will protect Virginia’s natural beauty, scenic rivers, State Parks, and Wildlife Management Areas and Refuges. He is a strong supporter of the rights of Sportsmen to hunt and fish on public lands.”

“Tim understands the economic, cultural, and recreational importance of keeping the Chesapeake Bay a vibrant and healthy resource for all Virginians,” said Anthony Moore. 

“I am pleased to support Tim Hugo,” said Kathleen Kilpatrick, former director of the Department of Historic Resources.  “We have worked together in the past and I know he understands the contributions that historic landmarks and lands make to the economic, educational, and social fabric of the Commonwealth.”

Domenech served as Virginia’s Secretary of Natural Resources from 2010 to 2014, and then as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Interior from 2017 to 2021.  He is a graduate of Virginia Tech. He is also a former Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee and served as the Executive Director of the National Center for Home Education, a division of the Home School Legal Defense Association.  He previously served as the Campaign Manager for Mike Farris’ Lt. Governor race.

Moore served as Deputy Secretary for Chesapeake Bay Restoration from 2010 to 2014, and previously in the EPA Office of Water Resources during the Bush Administration.
